Lisbon is a city of contrasts, where modern trends merge with ancient ones, accentuating Lisbon’s variety and intensity of color. Your sightseeing tour will pass by Commerce Square
thought by many to be the most beautiful in Europe. You will continue along Liberty Avenue
a charming old boulevard place of several international stores (such as Prada or Armani) lined with gardens and known for its unique black and white mosaics on the sidewalks on the way to Marquês de Pombal Square
. Take a photostop at Edward VII’s.
The highlight of your visit is the church of the Jeronimos Monastery
(outside visit only in 2021), a masterpiece of Manueline architecture, widely acknowledged to be the finest sight in Lisbon, built in the 16th century. Nearby, you will see the lavishly decorated Belem Tower
, and the Monument to the Discoveries
, built to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the death of Prince Henry the Navigator. On the way to the hotel or to the airport, you will see, stretching across the Tagus River, the April 25th Bridge
, sister to the Golden Gate, and the towering Christ the King statue
on the far side.
